Hello, My Friends!~~
On Friday I headed over to McLean/Langley (near the CIA headquarters) to an estate sale in an adorable cottage tucked away in a sweet neighborhood. One of the big bonuses of going to estate sales is finding places I didn't know existed. This neighborhood was one of those hidden gems, but I am pretty sure these small houses in this affluent zip code easily sell for $800,000.
Anyhoo, I was about 35 in line but when the folks running the sale opened the door, they let every one in! I love that! I immediatley scurried for the basement when my Spideysense told me the vintage holiday goodies were hiding out. I was not disappointed.
Take a peek at the fabulous vintage Christmas craft goodies I found:
As I was sortning through these sweet dime store holiday goodies I was so happy and grateful at my luck in finding what I truly needed to make more Christmas creations!
So many delightful bints n' pieces! I can't wait to get started!
I did find lots of goodies for you and have freshly listed them in Dime Store Chic!
I found out that this sweet vintage cottage was going to be torn down soon to make room for a mcmansion. There are other similar cottages on the same little street. I just don't get it. The integrity of a street scape, to me, is just was important as the buildings on it. I know so many don't want to rennovate and I get that, but I have such a soft place in my heart for old houses. I guess that's because I live in one.
Well, let me toss out some virtual good karma to you all in the hopes you will find wonderful treasures at your next estate sale adventure!~~~XXOO, Beth
